Oveloe - Maddi EP [mtk117]


Published
Topics IDM


The debut release from Canada's contemplative, indielectronicOveloe, aka Charles Bisaillon, who's previously released an excellent EP on net.label Kikapu, shows a beautifully phrased grasp of strangely retro-sounding, but absolutely not bleep heavy electronics. Soulful, considered, and intelligent, it makes the weirdest sense to us.

As for the individual songs, 'Transistor Love', the first track, allows a throbbing backbeat drift and a plaintive, multi-tiered lead, before seguing into an elliptic 'Mostly Misty', almost reminiscent of Monotonik cohort Anders Svensson in its looped approach to linearity. Next, the beautiful 'Petit Serpent' allows faster, more pattering beats, before 'Madeleine' locks thing down with a mellow, angelic final track. It's all about the feeling thatyou're where nobody can touch you, and Oveloe provides four very good reasons to feel that way, right here, right now.


1 - transistor love
[MusicBrainz (recording)]
2 - mostly misty

If Madeleine isn't a Sunday morning song- then I don't know what is...

The rest is just as fun-- the songs are imaginative, playful, and different.

Subject: An EP with a sweet killer Track
A simple, yet charming melancholic EP. Oveloe
knows how to effect much with unconventional and
lofi use of instruments between pianos and wahwahs. My Highlight is "Transistor Love" with it's huge outburst of temper with infinitely sad-sounding acid modulations.
